    They feel great while running, but I don’t expect them to last as long as other budget shoes.

    Very comfortable to walk with, to run with it.

  • 82 / 100 by Runner's Goal • Runner's Goal • Level 1 expert

    They are stylish with plenty of cushioning, however if you’re a regular marathon runner, you may find them wearing out faster than some of the other pricier shoes.

    Overall, the Adidas Duramo 7 is a nice running companion. I think that it’s a solid entry-level shoe and that it’s great for those who have neutral foot-pronation. This model is great for regular workouts in the gym!

Updates to Adidas Duramo 7

  • The 7th version of the Duramo from Adidas is a daily training shoe that’s crafted to provide a responsive and comfortable ride to the wearer. Its sleek, modern design is visually appealing and endearing to the contemporary tastes of today’s athletes. It is not heavy, so runners can surely use it with ease.
  • The upper unit of this running shoe uses a breathable material to make sure that the runner remains in a well-ventilated interior that’s able to keep moisture and odor at bay. The overlay system has been fused with the mesh material, making it almost a singular unit. Essentially, the upper is able to secure the foot responsibly.
  • The mid-sole unit uses a mid-sole technology that is sure to deliver high quality cushioning to the wearer. It is soft yet full-bodied, giving an underfoot experience that’s responsive and comfortable. It doesn’t limit the natural movement of the foot, so it remains flexible.
  • The outsole unit of the Adidas Duramo 7 uses a full-length rubber material that protects the rest of the sole unit from abrasion and wear. It is also able to give sure traction over the asphalt, making sure that surface control is always achieved by the runner.

Adidas Duramo 7 size and fit

The Adidas Duramo 7 is true to its size. It comes in sizes that follow the measurements for men and women. A medium width is available for this model. It accommodates those with feet that are medium-sized. The semi-curved shape of this shoe allows the foot to ease into it when wearing it.


Outsole

The ADIWEAR™ technology is a full-length rubber material that delivers sure protection against wear and abrasion. It makes sure that the rest of the sole unit is free from the damaging effects of surface contact and friction. It also gives traction over the roads, ensuring that the runner gets responsible surface control.


Midsole

The mid-sole unit uses the ADIPRENE® technology, a full-length foam that’s made from high quality materials. While giving responsible underfoot cushioning, it also delivers shock absorption in order to make each step easier and smoother. It’s durable, so it doesn’t break down or lose structure easily, so the underfoot experience remains superb, even after many uses.


Upper

The upper unit uses air mesh, which is a highly breathable material that covers the foot securely yet comfortably. It allows air to seamlessly enter the shoe in order to keep a cool and dry environment for the foot.

A fully-bonded construction keeps the upper unit lightweight and free from seams or stitching. It doesn’t limit the movements of the foot and it even makes sure that the runner is able to move more freely.

A comfortable textile lining makes sure that the foot is able to slip in and out of the shoe with ease and comfort. It doesn’t irritate the skin, so it’s possible to wear this running shoe without socks.

An EVA Sock Liner adds more cushioning to the underfoot. Made from high quality foam, it makes sure that the runner gets an extra springiness when stepping and lifting the foot. It doesn’t wear off easily and it even lasts long.
